  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
So whats a Division 1 2 and 3 YU is in Division 3? meaning the other Divisions have better teams?

Division I schools:

Offer at least 14 sports: seven for men and seven for women, or six for men and eight for women
Offer at least two team sports for men and two for women
Can guarantee an audience of a specific size for football and basketball
Provide some athletic scholarships. Division I schools have to meet minimum financial aid awards for their athletics program, but there is a cap on financial aid awards for each sport.
Have enough games to fit each sport's requirements
Require students to maintain a certain GPA and take at least 16 core courses for eligibility

Division II schools:

Have a minimum of 10 sports
Offer five each for men and women or four men's and six women's plus two team sports each
Have enough games to fit each sport's requirements
Require students to maintain a 2.0 GPA and take at least 16 core courses to be eligible

NCAA Division III
Division III schools don't offer scholarships or financial aid to athletes for athletic participation, though athletes are still eligible for scholarships offered to any students who apply. Division III schools have at least five men's and five women's sports, including at least two team sports for each.

In short, yes, to keep the games competitive they have 3 divisions and each division has rules to keep it balanced. The longer answers are above.

Correct. Almost no players in Division 3 could make a bench spot on Division 1 teams
